Tennessee River Basin Network

The Tennessee River Basin Network (hereafter, Network) is a partnership of states, cities, counties, federal agencies, academic organizations, business, and other non-governmental organizations.


Our mission is to inspire and empower the people of the Tennessee River Basin to effectively steward the regions's aquatic biodiversity.


The primary goals of the Network are to:

  • Provide forums for collaborative work on identified issues;
  • Promote resource sharing (i.e. data, tools, outreach materials) across the Basin and sectors to address common issues;
  • Track conservation action and derived products of partners; and
  • Identify and expand opportunities for a common communication strategy (outreach and awareness)


The Network is comprised of two Communities of Practice (Science & Management, Communication & Outreach) to promote engagement and collective learning. By bringing members of shared expertise and experience together regularly, partners are given the opportunity to help one another and share information and resources, thus enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of our conservation efforts. Several Network members have come forward to co-lead our Communities of Practice. These folks engage members within these two areas to ensure value-added communication and action related to the team's purpose enhances our collective learning and conservation efforts.
